Okay, let's continue.
Let me enter hilman Africa.
Surely if the hypocrites do Nazis,
the Nazis from what they do Nazis from their hypocrisy.
They do Nazis from harassing the women of the believers, they do not cease from harming the believers, if they do not cease from all such activities, one levena feel called to be a moron. And those people in whose hearts is a disease
if they do not cease from what
they do not start from what? From their muddled meaning they don't fix it if they don't fix it, and what kind of muddled is this, what diseases this the weakness of faith,
the weakness of faith, which leads them to disobedience, which leads them to crossing limits, which leads them to fracture,
the disease of shock, the disease of bad luck, the disease of arrogance, all of this is what diseases of the heart so if they do not stop from this model, meaning they don't fix it, one more G phone FL Medina T. And the scaremongers in the city, more de fauna is the plural of motif. And who is more Jiff one who causes What? What is Raja Raja?
for that tumor lodgify to
Let's face what earthquake? So motif is one who causes earthquakes, not literally, but one who causes the people to be shaken.
One who causes the people to be shaken. How does he do that? By spreading lies by spreading false rumors.
So it Jeff is what his job is to shake people by spreading false news or doing something and when people come to know of it, when people hear about that news, they're become extremely fearful. They become panic, they're alarmed, they get frightened, their peace goes away, their stability goes away, their hearts and minds are full of worry and concern. So if these murgee foun they do not stop from what from spreading false statements from spreading lies from spreading false rumors.
If they do not start from this
now, and Mooji phone Phil Medina and Medina over here first the city of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, what would they do? That they would spread fear amongst the people?
How that for instance, they would say your enemies here and your raiding parties have been massacred.
All your soldiers have been finished and Muslims have been defeated. Now imagine if such news reaches the people? Will they be shaken? Will they be scared? Of course, will they be in a state of alarm? Of course. So if the Moji phone do not stop from such activities, then what's going to happen? linoleum NECA be him surely we will definitely incite you against them. nunnery and nikka wine raw? Well, one is to is to put something on is to glue
to attach one thing with another and our hobby is to impose one on the other.
So linoleum mcabee Him we will impose you on them meaning we will urge you to take action against these three people.
And when you take action against them, so Malaya jivi, Luna coffee, then they will not remain as your neighbors in it in were in the city in lappalainen except and therefore udev hironaka Gene Wilder La Jolla, what does that mean to be a neighbor who is a job, neighbor. So now your job will ohnaka they will not remain as your neighbors in the city ala Cullinan except a little What does it mean by this except a little
for a short time. And also it means a few of them, only a few of them will be able to stay. And if they do stay, they will only be able to say for sometimes
we see that the hypocrites the people with weak Eman. They would spread alarming news amongst the people. And mostly this news was false. It had no reality to it.
Why would this spread such news? Because they were frightened themselves. Think about it. When you get frightened by something you're very scared about what do you do? Immediately you pick up the phone you start telling the whole world about it, isn't it like for instance, if you're told
You're going to have five deaths when you come back from eat.
Now, those of you who are not here, see the look on your faces. This is just an example. Okay? So those of you who are not here, what are you gonna do? As soon as you go home, you're gonna call them you know, five deaths, can you imagine five deaths, this, this, this, this this.
So, why does a person spread alarming news amongst people, when he is frightened himself
when he is worried himself
when a person has weak faith, weak reliance on Allah soprano,
then what happens? The smallest of problems even they seem very, very big, very big to him. Smallest problems even
this he make a big deal.
But when a person has strong faith, and you realize in a loss of panel data concerning everything is the worker is also stronger than what happens. Even if big, huge problems come before him. He gets frightened, but he remains calm. He says Carla in the Maria Robbie Santini, in sort of earlier on I 173. We learn about the believers and Latina calavo NASA in the nurse or the German are looking for show home. What an alarming news that the people have gathered together to attack you fear them, they're coming. But what happened to the believers has at home even increased them in their faith. And what did they say we'll call you husband, Allah when aramaki there's an ally sufficient for us
and what an excellent disclosure of affairs he is. So a person with weak faith, weak determination, weak the worker, what happens when he learns of some alarming use immediately he tells everybody about it. He spreads that fear he's frightened himself and he spreads that fear.
Now, the Mona, Philippine alladhina, Jacobi, Murat, and Elmo jiophone.
They would many times spread such news that had completely no basis. False, they would twist the truth, so that the people would leave everything that they were concerned with. And they would get overly worried about the false issues. You understand, this is what they would do. And as a result, people would be diverted from what is more important, and they will just worry and worry and worry.
So Allah subhanaw taala is warning the people over here. If you don't stop from your activities, remember, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is going to be commanded to take some action against you. And when he's commanded to take some action against you, then you will not be able to remain as neighbors of the prophets of aloneness and meaning you will be exiled from Medina.
You will not be allowed to live here anymore. Those people who spread alarm who spread terror through their words through their activities. What's the punishment for them? exile, don't let them stay. Because if they stay, they will only spread fear amongst people. They will only say such things that is going to reduce the moral the confidence of other people.
Why is this mentioned over here? You see at the Battle of esa what happened.
So many different different people had come in order to attack the Muslims. Right. And up until then, what had been happening. One party would be coming to attack the Muslims. The machine they came at bother they came at 400. Right. So many times, small battles took place. The Muslims were constantly under attack. And anytime there was some kind of threat. Then when African alladhina Karoubi Milan and the moochie phone, they would spread fear in the city. And they would exaggerate, they would greatly exaggerate the enemy that was approaching. And they would make the Muslims feel as if you are going to lose, you're finished, you're doomed. This is your end.
So this would really reduce the morale, the confidence of the believers. So such people are being warned you better stop this now. Because the situation has changed. Now the exam have come they have been defeated. They will not have the confidence to come again. And you don't spread any fear in the city. You don't spread any kind of fear any kind of alarm orator in the city of Las panatela says Mulrooney, ones who are cursed. Mulroney in Florida from their own ATM. So people wherever they are found who they are sees will go to tequila and massacred completely.
wherever they're found. They'll be seized and they'll be killed. completely finished.
Who those who have these three qualities of nofap of Murat of it, Jeff.
This is a punishment for them. That first of all, they're under the curse of Allah.
distance from the mercy of Allah.
And the first mercy that they're distanced from is one, that they will not be allowed to remain as neighbors of the Prophet. So
just imagine being the neighbor of the Prophet being living in the same city.
If you live in the same city as someone who's very famous, don't you feel proud? Of course you do. You live in the same street. Wow, you live in the same building. Wow, amazing. But imagine these people were living in a city of the profits on a lot, isn't it? But because of their activities, the profits are a lot of sense being told over here. You can exile them. And once they're exiled Mulrooney, and am I thoughtful, Okay, welcome to tequila. This is a ruling concerning them, you can actually kill them.
Now, did this happen or not? This did not happen. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam never took action against the hypocrites.
Isn't it so?
The ruling is there. They are allowed to be killed. However, the profits are the laws that have never waged war against them in Africa, nor did he exiled.
So these I add to serve as a severe warning for the people for the hypocrites for Allah Dena Fuca, Ruby Mara.
And in reality, such people are weak people.
So when these ads were revealed, they got frightened. And they resisted all such activities, they seized all such activities, which ones are spreading fear in the city?
Now, one thing that I want you to notice over here,
what was the I mentioned before these I had
the eye of hijab, which is a means of protecting the woman? Why is there a need of protecting the women?
Why? Because when they would step outside all sorts of people are there. Men who harass women,
men who physically harass women sexually harass them, right? And when a woman is harassed.
What does that spread in the city?
Fear isn't it's all if you find out that a girl was raped
in your streets in the middle of the night.
Would you be terrified? You'd be terrified.
If you find out that a girl was kidnapped from your block, would you be terrified? Of course you would be so sometimes murgee phone what do they do with their words they spread fear and sometimes with their activities with their actions. So they're being told if you don't stop there severe warning action will be taken against you. You better stop from your activities. And what's the punishment? exile, murder and Sonata life in Medina, Holloman. This is the way of a law concerning those people who had passed before. What?
that any person who has nefab who has Murat who spreads rumors who spreads fear in the city, they should be treated in this way what they should be exiled and on them as a learner of Allah
will encourage the listener to lakita Videla and never will you find any change any alteration for the weight of Allah, meaning it does not get changed, it does not get altered the way of Allah, it does not get changed.
What do we learn from these if
first of all we learned from these is about the great care that Allah subhanaw taala shows for the believing women
that look at the way that when African are being warned,
if you don't stop
action will be taken against you. People who harass women, people who have asked believers, people who are asked innocent, innocent men and women, then action will be taken against them.
We also learn from these ayat about warning against NFL man out of college and also a
Norfolk man out of college. Okay, what about a Jeff? We have to be very careful.
What kind of news do we spread amongst people?
What is it that we talk about with so much excitement? What is it that we talk about?
Is it such information that is going to give confidence to the people? Or is it such information that's going to make them depressed, upset, worried, concerned, we have to be very, very careful.
And a person should only tell others that which would boost his confidence, not something that would discourage him.
You understand? This suits a believer that he will only tell other believers what is going to
boost their confidence not discouraged them.
So anytime you're told you have two tests coming up, and you have an assignment you What should you talk amongst yourselves? Oh my god, this is so difficult. I still haven't done that. And there's so much work to do, and they don't get it.
Is this what we should say? What should we say?
What should we say? haspin. Allah, when they are mundo que Allah sufficient for us, I can do this on my own anyway. And when you will say something positive isn't going to boost the morale of other people around you as well? Of course it will. And if you say even one negative statement, even one, you're going to go down yourself, and you're going to take 10 other people down with you. If you say, I'm not going to show up the first day.
I'm not going to show the first day because the assignment is you. There is a test. I'm not showing up. I'm not coming. Then what are you doing? You're telling other people as well don't show up? Isn't it so?
So a believer should only say to others what is going to boost their confidence. We also learn from these is that these three traits, these three qualities which ones and if ALC, melotte and idgah. They are a means of humiliation in the dunya.
They are a means of depriving a person of good.
How what's humiliation,
Llandovery and Maccabee him so Malaysia Veronica? They will not be able to remain your neighbors except for just some time they will be exiled isn't that humiliation. And imagine losing the opportunity to be the neighbor of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam living in the same city
losing such a great opportunity. This is what humiliation losing opportunities in the dunya.
Also, we learn that these three traits are a means of inviting the curse of Allah as well. Because Mulrooney. So when a person spreads, fear spreads false rumors amongst people, what is he inviting on himself?
What is inviting on himself, the curse of Allah.
And you see many times what happens? We hear about something without verifying it, what do we do? We pass it on.
Sometimes we're not paying attention. Like for example, the example that I just gave you for five tests. It's quite possible somebody who's not paying much attention, and the only thing they catch is five tests when we come back.
And they go and tell other people about it. Spreading confusion, spreading fear.
And sometimes we hear information, we never verify it and we just pass it on to other people. We should be very, very careful.
Because if we pass on information that is incorrect, we never verified it. We are spreading fear amongst people what are we inviting? The curse of Allah? Isn't this something serious? It's very serious Mulrooney.
Ultimate learn from this idea that it is a son of a law that whenever people behave in this way, he punishes them. Whenever people spread false rumors amongst others.
Whenever people harass others, they have no foul they have modeled what happens. Allah subhanaw taala inflict punishment upon them. So not Allah Way of Allah fillerina Holloman Kabul. Well then Vegeta Listen, mutilated Leila. So any person whether it's time with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam or Afterwards, he does this spreading false rumors. There is punishment for him.
There's serious consequences for him in dystonia, and even in the
we listen to the recitation of these.

Does a woman need permission from her male relative to wear the proper hijab?
if he does not allow her?
He just said No, she doesn't need permission. But if he does not allow her, then
what do we see who is being told to tell the women, the men are being told. So it's the obligation of the men to tell the women, okay. And this makes the command even more important that not just a lot, but his messenger, but also through your column you're being told
and understand. Now, this shows that a woman, she must do this, it's an obligation on her. Correct, she must observe the proper hijab.
And if her male relative does not allow her, is she going to listen to him?
Let our otter leave a female Seattle Harlock. There is no obedience to the creation in disobedience to the Creator.
But it does not mean you become rude. You become harsh? No, you must speak to them.
And one of the things that you can do is really go and share the idea with them. Because sometimes even they don't know. Honestly, they don't know.
And we think they know everything. And despite that they're opposing us. They don't know. You can share this idea with them share a hadith or two with them, and tell them that you don't have a choice. Because we have learned in the surah earlier that will mark Kennedy movement in one minute in in a cada la hora, Sulu, Amman, an akuna, who will fail,
That it's not allowable for believing man or a believing woman. But when a lion has messenger beside it something they have a choice with regards to
tell them I don't have a choice. Sorry.
I just wanted to show you when I posted this ayah. And I didn't get its meaning. And right out because it is by hand. And as I
said, I still didn't get how I'm supposed to cover. Because this was like limited knowledge. I was looking for something properly the meaning covering of of the face what I couldn't find in here.
And so panela, the answer she gave me She said, Go home, read your notes again. And then come back to one of them ask them same question. And next day, when I came, I came with the car. Why? Because sometimes it's not the value there is us we don't get the meaning. And we went through my notes again and again. And how clearly it's mentioned that with Nina Allah de la Vina and is followed by Allah, you throw something down from the head. And I literally did that. I took my data, whatever it is my hand, and I was trying to understand it, actually. And when I did it, I got my answer.
I should have done it, what did she say? That would be sitting. And as soon as a man would come, we would dry down. And that's,
you know, in this word Ganga,
that this is what you have to do dry down from the side from above, to cover the face of wherever the men are. Now for the sake of convenience, what do you do, you pin it, right, or you stitch it or you wear a separate piece, whatever is more convenient for as long as it fulfills the purpose. It's perfectly fine.
When you are determined to do something, right or your test, so I decided to do that and my husband didn't mind it, but not very happy to. And right away he decided to have dinner outside and I went with Monica and I chose the corner that nobody's there and I can eat I can dine with him nicely. But my tests begin right away. A bunch of boys came and there was no point that somebody would come and sit there but they did. Now I did it again the food is there. He wants me to eat with everyone and I'm not eating and he said what now you're not going to take it off or you're not going to eat it with me. How come and I was so much upset what to do I don't want to take it off. I don't want to
make my husband angry as well. I kept on making our law just inspired me So
again, the my notes helped me you Nina Ella cover down because we think that niqab is something like elastic or like this right? Like you have to penetrate yes what I did I just put down my head I did this open my pin from here.
And right away, I did and I started.
The only thing he wanted, he wanted me to eat with him. That's it, he had no other product. So when you are sincere at heart, when you have the taco taco Haha, this is why too much repetition of the coins.
I say when you have there, you have intention,
one thing you know what she was saying? That when you start doing this, then
you get a lot of opposition. If you think about it, this command is given in with Surah
And what has been made very clear in this order, you don't have any choice. When you start doing something that come against you, isn't it? Everybody comes against you. But what's the solution? Give up? No. What does this battle teach us? You stay firm. You stay firm. And look at the way Allah will help you.
It's just believe me a few days.
Sometimes just a few weeks, sometimes it's a few months, a few days only. You just have to hold your ground. You have to stay firm, and Allah will help you.
I was thinking that when we hear comments like this special for niqab with experience, I've seen that you will have a lot of fear that okay, what will my husband say right now what will my family say? Some girls say I want to be able to go to school anymore. Some say okay, I want to be able to get the job. But you see, remember this surah started with the taqwa of Allah. And then Allah says have to work. If you have Taqwa of Allah, Allah, Allah will take care of you. You obey Allah subhanaw taala say Allah, it's hard for me. Maybe I find it very difficult even to do this to go straight within a club, but Allah will take care of you. And last is we did that there are people
who spread rumors, even in this one that he like, sometimes we go to people wearing a car visa, you know, now they starting bending, you're telling horrible stories about what happened with people who were wearing the clothes, you can't find the job. But what to do in that is because unless one of the law says if they don't stop, and then it will turn them away from where the professor lesson I was living. So thinking time away from these people, don't be close to these people. What we need to obey Allah subhanaw taala is having our coffee having stuff where he will take care of us. Exactly.
And the fact that when africaine and Athena Ruby Moto G phone, what does Allah say concerning that, we will urge you to take action against them and they will not be able to anything that
they will not be able to do anything. So people will try to frighten you. They will try to scare you. But remember, they're nothing.
All the power lies with you, Allah subhanaw taala if he will aid you, people cannot harm you at all. Nothing at all. And one more thing I want to mention to you that into sudo, what did we learn
that look at the example of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam suasana look at those who are better than those who are struggling those who are doing it. Because for example, when we look at the niqab, would we look at a girl who lost her job, or who couldn't go to school? A girl who couldn't do this, who's still not married, right? Look up to those who have been harmed and are working,
who have been a cop and are doctors who have been a cop and are going to school, isn't it so? It's possible. And the difference of opinion that exists with regard to niqab is what one group says it's what the other group says it's most the hub.
Nobody says you shouldn't do it. What do they say it's Mr. hub. Why should we stay back? Why
it's preferable? It's something that brings reward, why should we stay back? Do we have many good deeds that we think well, we don't need to do this good thing? Is that the case? It's not the case.
In the law, you have your anila Dina Armando, Allah defends the believers. The thing is that once you learn about something, and you realize about its importance, then don't delay doing it. Because if you sleep on it, then what's gonna happen?
You know, you kind of you know, few days go by, and then you're like, Oh, nevermind. I remember when I started in the pub was like, do it, not do it, do it not do it. Should I do it? Should I not do it? And we happen to have gone for rubra at that time. So I had a very strange experience. I was doing that the wife lost my brother lost my sister. So I was just doing that a lot myself. And I felt that a man was constantly looking at me. During that the wife I felt that when I went to bring my novel, I got so frightened. I just covered my face. I never wanted to do it. Never ever. I just got so frightened. I covered my face. I prayed mindful everything and then I went back
My mom saw me covering my face. And after that, whenever I would feel that somebody's looking at me, I would just cover my face because I would feel very, like, you know, unprotected and insecure. And I remember at the airport, as we were coming back, I didn't cover my face with my hijab. And the moms look him she's like, do it.
Thank you can do it, put it on, it's okay. And I told myself, it's like now, or never.
It's now or never, if I don't do it, now, I know, I'm never going to be able to do it afterwards. It's like you have to break the ice there. And then you have to take a step. And you need a lot of strength over there. You need the support of other people. You're here, you have one another support, do it. And if you don't do it now, it'll be very, very difficult to do it afterwards. And may go to a lot a lot more.
that Oh Allah show me the truth. As the truth Give me the ability to follow it. Give me the ability to live by to observe it.
When it comes to wearing the hijab, and youth Nina, Arlene hinda to cover even that, which is being exposed. Does that include the hands as well?
Yes, it does. Remember that sulit. Knuth also tells us about the details of hijab, isn't it? And sort of the new tells us that a llama Zarmina that you cover, except for that which is by itself shown.
So you're wearing a job, it's long enough to cover your hands, most of your hands. Now, if for the sake of convenience, some of your fingers are showing your hand is showing a little bit it's okay it falls in the category of a llama, Zahara minha. Okay, because all the time your hands are not being exposed in front of men. So if you are talking to a man that say, don't move your hands constantly, okay? Keep your hands you know, folded, put to the side, okay? Your sleeves are long enough that they cover most of your hand. Okay? So it falls into the category of a lemmas automata. That doesn't mean that you were such an A via the sleeves, which you know, you put the button over here right on
the wrist, so that the entire hand is being exposed. It shouldn't be like that, because part of the hand should be covered. Whatever is exposed of it that falls in the category of elements. Okay.
Okay, in the house, if you're living in a joint family system, like for example, your brother in law lives in the same house. What are you supposed to do? The way such as of a demonstrated like a big brother, okay, a big sheet. You wear it? And like I showed the law did when the man came, you know, drive onto the side. That's it simple. And when they're not there, keep your face open easy. You understand? Okay.
